beaches? >> absolutely. and that had always been the case at martin's beach. >> the law is called the coastal act. filed a lawsuit today against the owner, claiming he is in violation. the people are allowed to access the coast. we don't view this as in different, if somebody bought the houses d put up a fence and said that's now my backyard. >> attorney for the property owner didn't want to talk about it on camera, but said they welcomed the lawsuit, as far as the owner is concerned, this is not so much a fight over access to the water, but instead, it's a battle over the constitutional right of property owner. the landowner's attorney says the road is private. that the government can only order a property owner to allow the public on private property in certain circumstances and that this is not one of them. who exactly is the owner? he will only say it's a corporation called martin's group, in a recent letter to the writers, he identified,

10:15pm
it's one of those home repair jobs that comes with a big price tag and even bigger mess. replacing a roof. now, all those used shingles won't be heading to a landfill as kpix5's reporter explains, we'll be driving on them. >> with spring weather here,
10:16pm
contractors around the bay area are rapidly replacing roofs. hundreds of them every day. and that is a lot of roofs. in inmarin county alone, the question is, where does all that stuff go? usually here in the landfill. roofer, brian mcclarion says all those old shingles got to go somewhere. >> we are the single largest contributor to the landfills. if we can start diverting roofing material, it would be huge. >> working with the company in oakland is starting to pilot project called roofs to roads. now the old asphalt shingles could end up here. they would be ground up and used as an additive to new asphalt instead of the dump. about time. >> the newest and greatest thing, you know, they've been doing it for 25 years back east

and we are finally catching on. >> caltrans is studying the new mixture. so far, the tests on private roads looks good. in marin county, kpix5. just what does it really take to afford rent in the bay area these days? a new study shows it can take working more hours than there are in a day if you are making minimum wage. john ramos with one bay area county where more than half of the population can't afford to pay rent. >> the government defines affordable housing as costing less than a third of your income. but a new study is out that says california's average two bedroom apartment is now more than $1300. and for that to be affordable, your full-time job would have to pay $26.02 per hour. >> what if you don't make $26 an hour? what if you make minimum wage?
10:18pm
>> that's when the numbers get grim. to afford the same apartment, the household would have to include minimum wage earners. or a sing l person making $8 an hour would have to work $130 hours a week. 52 weeks a year. >> obviously that's not realistic. you can't work more than 24 hours in a day. families are struggling to get by. they are spending more than 30% of their income toward their rent. >> it helps finding housing for people in contra cost tay county that end up on the street. people who couldn't make rent despite working two or three minimum wage jobs. >> how many people do you know of that are spending 1/3 of their income on their housing? >> i don't know anybody. we can't afford living like that. it's impossible. >> heather was working three jobs when she got pregnant.
10:19pm
she actually had to choose between having an apartment or her son. >> it was really hard, actually. down to almost giving birth. i was really questioning whether i was going to keep him or not because i couldn't afford it. >> that's a terrible choice. >> it was a really hard choice. >> the situation is bad and only getting worse. the numbers show the gap between the have's and the have notes is widening. leaving many with literally no place to go. in concord, john ramas, kpix5. saw a woman in the picture with an umbrella, not for the rain, for the sunshine. >> you can still use the umbrella, even in this weather. it's that sunny outside, we can't get an organized batch of rain fall. now we are talking about something else, the warm, summer-like warmth. coming to spots like san jose. you hit the mid 70s today.
10:20pm
we'll add 5 to that tomorrow and some of you, especially lo s altos. the day will start off warm. 50 for san francisco. vallejo 47 and concord 46 degrees. the radar, don't pay attention to that green. there is no rain fall out this. had some fog at the coastline today. had some fog, because that's because we had a light on shore flow. all the rain fall headed towards the seattle. we are protected. tomorrow, forget about the on shore wind. it will be at its strongest to give an goff shore wind. that will warm up everybody, you'll get up near 70 and some of you will have the warmest weather since early november. getting up to 80 degrees. high pressure begins to move, but far enough to the south
10:21pm
that an online air will come back. it will be mild and dry, but it won't be as warm. tomorrow will be the peek of this heat wave we are going to go through. warmest weather since early november, we'll stay inland through the morning, and also at the coast. not tomorrow, highs approaching 80. san jose, 80 degrees. santa clara 79. fremont 77. san ramon and concord, 80 for napa. 80 for sanoma. we will stay in the 70s through the weekend. mainly dry, trending cooler next week, but i don't see any rain fall and 80 degrees tomorrow. that is toasty. >> getting warm. >> it's getting warm, yes. >> we need the rain, but we should enjoy it. thanks paul. >> is this an offer too good

10:25pm
dating site, sugardaddy.com offered $12 million to wood side, if the village would legally change its name to sugardaddy.com, california. wood side chosen because of it small size and extreme wealth, which means you're looking at a tremendous amount of affluent, older gentleman. so we figured it's a good place to plant our flag. >> that means you are serious? >> the men were unanimous, no sugar daddy name up in here. >> i thought it was a joke. all towns come and try that, this isn't one that means the money or has any desire to change their name. >> this is crazy. this is woodside, this is in and out not sugardaddy.com. >> but women outnumber the men and some think the name change works. >> it's totally suiting, of course i think it's a good idea. >> it's totally suiting.
